New Tile Plant Everett Fraley has secured a cement tile machine and will manufacture and sell to the far mers a first class cement tile in the necessary sizes. Cement tile is a much better drain tile than clay since it is porous and cannot be stopped up so easily. Clay tile in the course of years rots underground; cement tile gets better from year to year. While a much better product, Mr. Fra. ley will offer his 6tock at a sav mg to the farmer in price. This being a home industry, no farmer should think of going out of the county to get tile, and there are thousands of feet of it needed around Clay City and in Powell county.

They capture all the whiskey stills, The 'shiners will be found. Now boys, if you have helped to make This strong and iiellish drink, If you keep this business up In sin you'll deeper sink. Its true you may escape the law - And go from time to time, Hut justice will 6vertake you If you keep on doing crime. If you have a clear conscience You Won't have any fear, And you'll b tried in heaven If you teat your cases herv.
